Hannah of Fairfield

By Jean Van Leeuwen

Hannah Perley is just like so many almost-nine-year-old girls. She's a daughter, a sister, a neighbor, a friend. But lately her life has become much more challenging. There's the birth of a fragile orphan lamb whose life rests in Hannah's willing but unsure hands. And even more worrisome are the growing demands of the war. Everyone in Fairfield has been doing their best to support the colonial soldiers in their battle for American independence. But now the war has come into Hannah's very own home as her beloved brother Ben decides to join the fight. And as Ben's departure looms, Hannah finds that she must try a little harder, understand a little better, and perhaps grow up a little faster than she ever thought she would. This story will be part of a trilogy chronicling the years of Hannah's life as she and her family face the trials of the Revolutionary War. With Hannah of Fairfield the author's wondrous tradition of stories that expand young people's views of themselves and their world continues on its stellar path.
